THE STORY:

I'm honored to run the 2013 ING NYC Marathon + raise money to support the Innocence Project - an organization that I have had a relationship with for several years + recently raised over $2,000 for in conjunction with the 5 borough bike ride.  I believe strongly in the Innocencence Project's goals and methods of not just battling wrongful convictions and freeing the innocent on a case by case basis, but also pushing for policies around the country that make our justice system more fair and more accountable.  To show my commitment to reaching my fundraising goals, (besides running 26.2 miles) I will match each dollar raised on this site, and my generous employer will do the same!

 

On Sunday, November 3, 2013, a team of ten will run for the Innocence Project in the ING New York City Marathon, raising awareness about wrongful convictions and fundraising to help free the innocent. 

310 People in the U.S. Have Been Exonerated by DNA                         

  • The first DNA exoneration took place in 1989. Exonerations have been won in 36 states; since 2000, there have been 241 exonerations.
  • 18 of the 310 people exonerated through DNA served time on death row. Another 16 were charged with capital crimes but not sentenced to death.
  • The average length of time served by exonerees is 13.6 years. The total number of years served is approximately 4,136.
  • The average age of exonerees at the time of their wrongful convictions was 27.
  • In more than 25% of cases in a National Institute of Justice study, suspects were excluded once DNA testing was conducted during the criminal investigation.
  • 65% of the people exonerated through DNA testing have been financially compensated. 27 states, the federal government, and the District of Columbia have passed laws to compensate people who were wrongfully incarcerated.
     
  • An Innocence Project review of closed cases from 2004-2010 revealed that 22% of cases were closed because of lost or destroyed evidence.
     
  • The true suspects and/or perpetrators have been identified in 152 DNA exoneration cases.
